OL president Jean-Michel Aulas was clear on Monday evening: Lyon’s transfer window closes on Friday in the direction of the departures.
In search of results At the start of the season, OL seem undermined by the uncertainty that hangs over the future of their major assets: Houssem Aouar, Memphis Depay and Moussa Dembélé to name a few. The president of the club, Jean-Michel Aulas, understood this well and made a categorical statement this Monday evening on Téléfoot: ” From Friday, players who have not left will not leave! “
” I think we will tell the players that for anything that will not be settled before Friday, there will be no start, insists the Rhone boss. For us, the end of the transfer window will be Friday (October 2, editor’s note, while the official closing is set for October 5). I think to propose it tomorrow (Tuesday) to Rudi and Juni. We realize that there is something wrong. It could be that and many other things … “
” I sometimes read in articles that you absolutely need to sell, but no, hammers “JMA”. That’s why it’s very easy for me to make the decision to say that anything that is not done on Friday will be postponed until next year. On the other hand, one can very well decide with a club, a player, to have an agreement to leave next year. In any case, everything that will have to be done for this transfer window will have to be completed on Friday, so that the players who will face Marseille on Sunday are totally released. “
In the direction of the arrivals, Uruguayan winger Facundo Pellistri is due in Lyon on Thursday to initial a five-year contract. OL are still working on securing the loan with option to buy Brazilian playmaker Lucas Paqueta from AC Milan.
